lets start all over again!!!! a lot to recover, time to start winning

i would pic the exact same team bier, except for geovanni maybe...i dunno , it may be a good idea to give him a chance again, but i would like to see karyaka play on the left. it has never been tried, and geovanni's performances have been quite poor...i might play karyaka on the left and simao on the right.

either way, lets hope the line up goes something along that, and koeman doesnt invent

True, Karyaka on the left was quite good back in Sovetov from what I read. Why not. Simão can play well on both wings, so it's worth a try. Most important for me is that Koeman sticks to a 4-man-defence though.
I'm actually quite a fan of Geovanni, but he's underperforming since the season kicked off to be honest (not that he's the only one though)

You start Geovani, but if he sucks as much ass as he did against lille, you take him out at the half and put in Kayakyourboat.

Manelele also needs to step up. If he doesn't bring his usual game, he too needs to sit. Bring in Beto. Finally, give Mantorras a chance with a little more than 10 minutes, fercrissakes!

I can only back that claim. With the faith of his coach Mantorras has it to make 20 at least a season.

Oops I already expected so, but I had some doubts over the spelling, thus I chose the second word. What does this name mean BTW? Krylya Sovetov.

Nice to see Koeman telling Geovanni that he needs to work harder, but still giving him a chance to prove his commitment tonight. If i was the manager, that would be exactly the way i'd try to solve the problem.

Literal translation would be "Wings of Soviets". A Team named after a legendary plane. Krylya, Krylia, Krilya, call it however you like

I'm going to inject Nuno Gomes with a youth potion which will bring him back to 2000 form

official line-up:
BENFICA - Moreira; Nelson, Luisão, Anderson e Léo; Manuel Fernandes, Miccoli e Petit; Geovanni, Nuno Gomes e Simão

Just like Trapattoni, Koeman started reading Xtratime

Yap, Nelson seems to be a great signing so far ... well, and OG's injection seems to have worked quite well
